It's impossible to edit a URL in the new and terrible address bar. This is a problem, and just one tiny example among many, when a website shows a non English page because I am in some other country. I used to be able to change .../de/etc. to /en-us/etc. and get the correct page. Now I have to click dots, select to copy, paste into notepad, make the change and paste-and-go.

Can this completely idiotic behavior be changed? Who is this aimed at, anyway? Address bars have worked the same for decades at this point - and whilest enhancing it is fine, disabling something as basic to ALL Windows or Mac as editing is insane.

I keep getting a Microsoft Edge download banner when I visit websites using Firefox as my browser. I have selected Firefox as my default browser in the Default Apps settings. I have installed an ad blocker, and turned off every notification switch I can find in Windows settings. I have taken ownership and changed permissions on every Microsoft Edge folder and file on my laptop. Then I deleted them all. I edited the registry to prevent Microsoft Edge from being downloaded or running at start up. I installed Winaero Tweaker and selected the "stop all ads in Windows 10." I still get the banner. Is there any way to turn this off?

I'm streaming video a lot in the PiP breakout window while reading other web pages. I think it's a great feature and I've seen some improvements in the UI over time. I was hoping this problem would have been fixed in the latest update or noticed by someone either in development or another user at some time, but I could find no reference to it when searching the help pages.

When the video is playing in the window, everything works fine. Except when I'm watching something like a live broadcast that has breaks in it for commercials. My practice is to keep an eye on the video playing when I've muted the tab, while I continue my reading in other tabs. When the program comes back on in the PiP, I unmute (demute??) the tab and usually return the picture to the host tab, then go full screen.

At least half the time I do that, the navigation bar - where you can stop/start the play, go forward/back 10 seconds, and where you see the red "LIVE" notification or how many minutes/seconds you are behind the LIVE stream - shows that my program is now minutes behind the LIVE point. The funny thing is, it doesn't do it consistently and I have tried several things to figure out if it's something I'm doing. But there is no rhyme or reason why it's happening. It did this when I had Windows 8, and continued after I installed Windows 10.

For a three or four minute break, I will lose perhaps two or three minutes. I suppose that if I left it in the PiP configuration and just let the program play for the two or three hours it would take for the duration, the time would slip maybe as much as forty five minutes to an hour. Typing this statement now is going to push me to try it next time for an observable result. Again, though, it doesn't happen every time.

My guess is that, for some reason, video frames are being dropped when it's in PiP mode and instead of 30 fps it's only delivering 15 fps. (If 30 fps is what's normal.) I do not have this slippage when I maintain the picture in the standard size video box or when it's full screen. So yeah, as I'm thinking more about it, a distinct possibility is that the frames per second is reduced for the PiP, because it is not able to keep up with the higher frame rate. But then the question is why doesn't it do it 100% of the time.

So thank you all for thinking about it, and multiple thanks to the ones who can help this one be marked "solved". Later -

Update came and I became furious that the pdfviewer is changed (I could write you a 300 page book why the forced UI and changes to user settings are terrible and hated everywhere). I would like to use the previous version (with the dark background), not this white version which burns out my eyes. I really hope that there is an option for this and only I could not find it.

Thanks in advance!

P.s: I do not want to install any themes/plugins/whatevers to solve this problem, the previous Firefox pdf viewer did not need them.

Printing Problems with Firefox

I have a new HP printer and I am using Firefox from a Windows 10 PC. I am plagued with Paper Mismatch errors when printing emails from Firefox. After a lot of trouble shooting, I have found that this problem seems to be confined to Firefox, as it does not happen when using other browsers, e.g. MS Edge. I have tried resetting all Firefox printer settings and the problem still happens when opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

The print job stops with the error message Paper Size Mismatch after the 1st page, and printing will not continue or even move on to the next job until the error is cancelled from the printer's control panel. This means I have to be working next to the printer and cannot print remotely.

In the printing dialogue box under Printing Preferences, the paper size shows Letter, whereas I am using A4 in the printer, and this is the mismatch causing the problem. I can change the paper size in Printing Preferences from Letter to A4, but I have to do this for every job seperately as the paper size setting always reverts to Letter. This is totally impracticable.

Regretably, I will have to stop using Firefox unless there is a solution. Can anyone help me to change the paper size setting to always default to A4, please? Thanks in anticipation.
